I bought these several years ago for a restoration project and before I finished, the sealed struts came out so I bit the bullet and bought them also. These have been in dry storage, never used, and are still in the original Univair primer with the FAA-PMA part number stamped on the struts. They are not sealed and use the original 7/16 forks.
Two front struts 007-U13233-04 FAA-PMA J3, L-4A,4B, TG-8
Two rear struts 007-U10580-03 FAA-PMA PA-11, J3 These rear struts are PA-11 struts also approved for the J3 and are larger than the original J3 rear strut. I have the original shipping tube but it would be better if you could pick them up. I'm in southern New Hampshire.
$500 for all four plus shipping.

One should not be afraid of the inspection necessary . Find an IA that likes the Clyde Smith method of inserting that small 12V GM Halogen bulb up through the barrel and inspecting by eye. I did that for a couple of years on an unsealed strut.

That is a great deal for someone, they will last a very long time with care.

Hi MM-

I saw other interest already, but if these are still available, I would like to buy. I am building an experimental PA11 and these would work nicely for me. I would be able to buy immediately.
